Hitting out at the Bollywood actress, Bachchan, Vivek wrote, “Have you guys heard of a term called ‘costume Slaves.’ They are mostly girls (a suited man in this case). You can see them now in India too with almost every female celeb. Why are we becoming so stupid and oppressive just for such uncomfortable fashion?”

After his post, several netizens poured comments on Vivek’s ‘costume Slaves’ remarks. Some agreed with Vivek, while many also questioned him for slamming Aishwarya. One of the netizens asked, “Why are you jealous? Cannes did not invite you.” Another tweeted, “Personal choice! None of your judgemental business.” A user wrote, “I think the brands pay them (ambassadors) for the carpet looks. Money makes the world go round. After all, it’s a part of show-biz.”

Whilst, agreeing with The Kashmir Files director’s thoughts, a Twitter user wrote, “Whoever’s dress/costume, their own responsibility. This woman pampering should be stopped.” Another said, “They really watch movies wearing these? Man, how do they enjoy the movies? She would have been so uncomfortable.”
